Re: Was Roddenberry a Terrible Writer?
^In Ex Machina, I mentioned that Starfleet was depleted due to all the ship losses in TOS and a few of the novels (and Vanguard later added a couple more to the list), and had been slow in building replacements.
I remember reading that. Was Starfleet slow because of the number of ships lost or because they were debating about using some of the new ship design concepts to construct additional vessels, provided Enterprise
performed well post-refit?
